lyrics

Ol' Ghost Jack he's a man clad in red
Flannel his style the lumberjack stead
Some say his eyes give a Ghosty red glow
Go ask the demons, they'd know
Eyes like the devil and old leather boots
Soon as he sees you, you know you are spooked
Beard trim and proper, you'd think he's quite young
Something tells me that'd be wrong

Ol' Ghost Jack tell me what do you see?
Why are you there lookin' at me?
Starin' at me from above my bed
You've come snoopin' in my pad
Ol' Ghost Jack tell me what do you see?
Why are you there lookin' at me?
Starin' at me from above my bed
Why have you come for me?

Ol' Ghost Jack he's a man of the wood
The trees and the pumpkins plant them you should
Lichens be talkin' like people out here
Only when woodsmen are near
Some say he's a demon, some say he's a ghost
Some folk say an angel, or death you suppose?
Still others they think he's a fairy-land spook
Some folk just think he's a kook

Ol' Ghost Jack tell me what do you see?
Why are you there lookin' at me?
Starin' at me from above my bed
You've come snoopin' in my pad
Ol' Ghost Jack tell me what do you see?
Why are you there lookin' at me?
Starin' at me from above my bed
Why have you come for me?
